Given the small fit indicated by other customers, I ordered a size 10 and overshot by a lot. I'm 5' 8" and 110 lbs and bought a size 4 dress and a size 6 dress from their local store recently. So I knew it was VERY risky to buy this dress online (without trying it first), especially since it was final sale. But I had been looking for a white dress and really liked the style of this one when I saw the pictures of the model - and it wasn't available in the store. Fortunately, after explaining my situation, the customer service agreed to exchange it for me and sent back a size 8 promptly (thumbs up!). Size 8 now fits me. However, I would still recommend making all efforts to try it before buying it, as although the lower half looks really great on me, the upper half is still so big the parts under the armpits would stick out. The only way for it to fit as intended is if I had 40D for my bra...
The dress has a simple and yet elegant design that's not easy to find. And the final sale price is a good bargain. But watch out the fit issues.

Woah! This dress is SMALL! My own fault...I read the other reviews and ordered a 6 instead of my size 2. STILL TOO SMALL! I'm 5'4" and 118 lbs. Crazy tight.

Yet Again - Unpredictable Sizing
Date:May 9, 2012
Pros: Great look
I recently purchased two dresses - Colette Floral Dress & Elusive Love Belted Dress, both in size 4. Colette dress fits perfectly. I had to exchange Elusive Love for size 6 and it is still too small. I think size 8 would fit but it is final sale at this point and French Connection will not exchange the item. In my view, it is a faulty design when two dresses have such a gap in sizing - one fits in size 4, the other in 8... I wasted $248 and would not recommend to anyone to make online purchases from French Connection due to unpredictable sizing.
